Brewery Offers Paid 'Paw-ternity' Leave For Employees With New Puppies

Posted February 18, 2017

One brewery understands that that process can take a toll on employee productivity and it's doing something about it: offering paid leave.

BrewDog, a Scottish brewery in OH, is now the first company in the U.S.to offer a week of paid leave for employees with a new puppy or a rescue dog.

Also, dogs are a lot of work!

Taking time out for paw-ternity leave!

BrewDog, a canine-inspired Scottish beer company, will offer the benefit to staff at its soon-to-be opened OH brewery.

"It's awesome to see puppy parental leave resonating so much with so many people", spokeswoman Sarah Warman told The Huffington Post. "Whether man, woman or pup, we encourage all members of our family to support and look out for one another", the company said. Since then, those guys, co-founders Watt and Martin Dickie, have created a dog-friendly atmosphere at the Scotland brewery. When Mandy dies and goes to the Big Dog Park in the Sky, I know I will be too devastated to go to work.

All of these perks apply to more than 1,000 BrewDog employees around the world.

Co-founder James Watt (left) said: "We always want to raise the bar when it comes to offering our staff the best possible benefits; at BrewDog, we care about two things above all else".

Also this week, the company announced it is partnering with Superior Beverage Group and Cavalier to supply its beers around OH.
